The first nationwide Thanksgiving in the U.S. took place at the end of the Revolutionary War, when George Washington called for a Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, November 26th, 1789. But it was only a one-time event. Burt Wolf discovers why it took until 1941 for Thanksgiving to be a federal holiday, how the bald eagle won out over the turkey as a national bird, and what stuffing U.S. founding parents preferred. First program in a 13-part season.
